This installment of Curbed Comparisons takes a look at what $350,000, within $6,000, buys right now around Atlanta.
From single-family homes to condos to townhomes, available homes at this price point share one common characteristic: In-town inventory is low. Plus, the closer the home is located to the city center, the smaller the home is. But if a lack of space is not a major deterrent, or living more than walking distance from popular shopping, dining, and entertainment destinations is not a problem, these listings might be the right choice.
This renovated 1949 Parkview home on the edge of Kirkwood features three bedrooms and two bathrooms in 1,776 square feet. Architectural details range from the coffered ceiling in the kitchen to the original hardwood floors to the “tons” of tile work in the master bathroom. The fenced-in backyard and deck provide a good spot for entertaining or just relaxing with family. Current asking price: $344,000
Located in the Enclave at Grant Park, this 2005 townhome comes with two bedrooms and three bathrooms in 1,492 square feet on three floors. Recent updates include new interior paint, new carpet on the top floor, and a new air conditioning unit. But it’s the three outdoor spaces that may make an impression on potential buyers. The current asking price is $350,000.
The smallest property in this group, but also the only one located downtown, this one-bedroom, one-bath condo is part of the W Atlanta Residences. Measuring 868 square feet, actual rooms are limited to the main room with kitchen and the bedroom. However, that main room seems much more expansive thanks to the panoramic views looking out over Centennial Olympic Park and beyond. Current asking price: $349,000
With three bedrooms and two bathrooms in 1,900 square feet, this 1930 brick home in Westview has received a complete overhaul inside. Think new kitchen, updated bathrooms, and a new privacy fence out back. Beyond the fence, however, it doesn’t appear much attention was paid to the backyard, which could benefit from a nice patio or elevated deck. The current asking price is $350,000.
The largest house in the bunch, this 2,437-square-foot bungalow features four bedrooms and four bathrooms on a corner lot. Playing up the home’s natural charm is the large covered front porch, the tongue-and-groove ceiling in the master bedroom, and lots of built-in storage in one of the other bedrooms. Current asking price: $349,900
